Blog Ad: How to Get Porkulus Cash

RUSH: There's an ad running, a website ad that's on several websites, MSNBC, ABC, CNN, CNBC, TV Guide: "US government is giving away over $10 billion a month in grants." It's got a picture of Obama in sunglasses here, a white open-collared shirt and sport coat. "The new economic stimulus package means free money for you. Read how you can get your government grant that never has to be repaid," and there's a "learn more now" button that you click. By the way, seriously, this pay-as-you-go business...

Drive-Bys Try to Marginalize Jindal

RUSH: The Democrats are trying to tie Bobby Jindal to me in hopes of making him out to be an extremist. That's exactly what Obama was trying to do when he called me out in that meeting with Republican and Democrat leaders in the White House when he said, "Don't listen to Limbaugh." The Obama theory is get rid of the playing field, you know, clear it, don't level it. So yesterday got some great Jindal sound bites, governor of Louisiana, Meet the Press yesterday. David Gregory said, "Let me spend...

How Rush Benefits from Porkulus

RUSH: I'm very embarrassed. I have learned that I personally am going to benefit from the Porkulus bill. It was brought to my attention over the weekend, fit to be tied. It turns out one of the shovel-ready projects in Missouri is the Cape Girardeau County Regional Airport. It's going to receive $1.6 million on pavement maintenance of the runways and the tarmac. That's where I fly into when I go visit the family. Thus, I am benefiting from the Porkulus. I have a mind to call whoever in the...

Life Lessons from the New England Patriots

RUSH: Now, I want to read some excerpts from this book. In the National Football League right now there are two teams that all the other teams want to be like. One team is the Pittsburgh Steelers; the other is the New England Patriots. Because they never, very rarely enter the free agent market -- Patriots do sometimes, they'll pick up some people everybody thinks are beyond the peak, beyond their prime, but somehow they end up -- Corey Dillon is an example, Junior Seau, linebacker. But those...

Foreclosure Crisis Hits Five States

No matter where you look in the market, which is where the real polling data is on all these plans coming out of Washington, you don't find anybody that is confident. You don't find any institution that is confident about what is happening, and now this....

America '09: Laid Off and Loving It

RUSH: Obama announced, by the way, this big deal coming up tomorrow night, is going to announce his tax increases, and folks, the wrong way to talk about this is Obama is going to raise taxes on the wealthy. That is the wrong way to talk about this, because what's going to happen is that the Bush tax cuts are going to be allowed to "perspire" in 2011, and that will move the current top marginal rate from 35 up to 39.6, effectively 40%, and this is on incomes over $250,000 a year. This is a massive,...

What One High-Ranking Republican Thinks About Obama and Limbaugh

RUSH: I had a meeting -- I have to tell you this -- after the program on Friday I had a meeting with a high-ranking Republican, it doesn't matter who, and the high-ranking Republican said to me, "I was stunned when I heard that Obama mentioned your name in that meeting with Republican and Democrat leaders as somebody who shouldn't be listened to." I said, "Why were you surprised about that?" "Why bring you up? All it's going to do is increase your ratings and finance and so forth." I said, "Let...
